The TRIPSTIX approach

Thorough engineering craftsmanship is at TRIPSTIX the fundament for innovation. Years of development and extensive tests disembogue into new approaches to watersports technologies with clear focus on excellency. Key to the outstanding performance of all our boards is a complex arrangement of multiple chambers. They provide for precise shapes with a real hardboard feeling, but the practicality of inflatables.

Patented VacuuAir Technology

For extra safety

High-pressure chambers with various tube circumferences define the accurate shape of the board, whereas the vacuum chambers -filled with granule- serve as stringers throughout the entire surfboard. This unique technique provides extra safety on the water: Where regular inflatables could easily sink, our VacuuAir boards still float on the water surface due to the buoyancy of the granule, even when being damaged.

ClustAir Technology – Pending for patent

For extra convenience

High-pressure chambers with various tube circumferences define the accurate shape of the board. At the same time a special patent pending arrangement creates a rigid structure that provides for a hardboard feeling. The packing size is therefore extra convenient and enables comfortable traveling while not giving up on performance and a real surf feeling.
